Bachelor in Paradise's entire original fourth-season cast is returning to Mexico now that filming will resume, with the exception of two people.
According to bachelorette Amanda Stanton, every original cast member has decided to give Paradise another shot except for Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, who were at the center of the sex scandal recently under investigation, People reported.
Corinne and DeMario definitely aren't returning, said the single mom of two.
A show producer allegedly filed a complaint with Warner Bros. over a sexual encounter between DeMario and Corinne in which Corinne appeared too intoxicated to provide proper consent.
In the days that followed, Corinne called herself a "victim" dealing with "physical and emotional trauma stemming from that evening" in Paradise, but DeMario released a statement saying his character has been "assassinated with false claims and malicious allegations." He was even allegedly fired from his job.
Warner Bros. then announced on June 20 that the investigation was complete and no evidence of misconduct or wrongdoing was found. With that said, Bachelor in Paradise would continue production and still air this summer on ABC.
When producers asked Amanda to finish out the Bachelor in Paradise season, she told People that she had a brief moment of doubt considering all the drama that's played out in the last couple of weeks.
"It definitely crossed my mind, like, 'Do you want to be involved in all this?' But I think we already kind of were, because we were involved from Day 1. Picking up where we left off, I didn't really hesitate to go back," Amanda explained.
Filming is set to resume in the next couple of days.
"I'm glad we're all able to go back. But it's just kind of interesting, no one knows how it's going to work out," Amanda added.
